The vast bacteriophage population harbors an immense reservoir of genetic information. Almost 2000 phage genomes have been sequenced from phages infecting hosts in the phylum Actinobacteria, and analysis of these genomes reveals substantial diversity, pervasive mosaicism, and novel mechanisms for phage replication and lysogeny. Here, we describe the isolation and genomic characterization of 46 phages from environmental samples at various geographic locations in the U.S. infecting a single… Expand
Genomic diversity of bacteriophages infecting Microbacterium spp

Bacteriophages of Gordonia spp. Display a Spectrum of Diversity and Genetic Relationships
TLDR
It is suggested that any barriers to genetic exchange are soft and readily violable, and further isolation and genomic comparison of phages targeted at related groups of hosts promise to reveal pathways of bacteriophage evolution. Expand
Staphylococci phages display vast genomic diversity and evolutionary relationships
TLDR
This study provides a high-resolution view of staphylococcal viral genetic diversity, and insights into their gene flux patterns within and across different phage groups (cluster and subclusters) providing insight into their evolution. Expand
DNA tandem repeats contribute to the genetic diversity of Brevibacterium aurantiacum phages.
TLDR
The characterization of the first virulent phages infecting Brevibacterium aurantiacum, a bacterial species used during the manufacture of surface-ripened cheeses, is presented and it is shown that TRs are widespread in phage genomes, found in more than 85% of the genomes available in public databases. Expand
Investigating the diversity and evolution of temperate actinobacteriophages
TLDR
A large collection of phages infecting hosts in the phylum Actinobacteria is investigated to expand the understanding of temperate phage diversity and evolution and it has identified genetic systems that can be used to develop new genetic tools. Expand
Novel Cluster AZ Arthrobacter phages Powerpuff, Lego, and YesChef exhibit close functional relationships with Microbacterium phages
TLDR
It is shown that phage Powerpuff is a true temperate phage and forms stable lysogens, and evidence that Clusters AZ and EH phages exhibit similar genome architectures in addition to their shared integrases is provided, suggesting that these phages may all be temperate and undergo an unknown lysogeny mechanism. Expand
Singleton phage BlueFeather reveals novel relationships in the Arthrobacter phage population
TLDR
Gene content similarity revealed that BlueFeather shared genes with Clusters FE and FI in excess of a parameter for clustering Gordonia and Microbacterium phages, highlighting the advantage of using shared gene content to study seemingly genetically isolated phages. Expand
BlueFeather, the singleton that wasn’t: Shared gene content analysis supports expansion of Arthrobacter phage cluster FE
TLDR
Findings highlight the advantage of using shared gene content to study seemingly genetically isolated phages and have resulted in the reclustering of BlueFeather, a putative singleton, as well as former Cluster FI phages, into a newly expanded Cluster FE. Expand

Whole genome comparison of a large collection of mycobacteriophages reveals a continuum of phage genetic diversity
TLDR
To understand the population structure of phages infecting a single host strain, 627 phages of Mycobacterium smegmatis were isolated, sequenced, and compared to reveal a continuum of genetic diversity, albeit with uneven representation of different phages. Expand

TLDR
Although the R4-like phages do not share nucleotide sequence similarity with other phages, they clearly have common ancestry with cluster A mycobacteriophages, sharing many protein homologues, common gene syntenies, and similar repressor-stoperator regulatory systems. Expand

The E3 genome and comparative analysis provide insight into short-term genome evolution and adaptive plasticity in tailed phages from the environmental microbiome. Expand
Small but Sufficient: the Rhodococcus Phage RRH1 Has the Smallest Known Siphoviridae Genome at 14.2 Kilobases
TLDR
It is demonstrated that lytic phage can be recovered from transforming naked DNA into its host bacterium, thus making it a potentially useful model for studying gene function in phages. Expand

TLDR
Whole genome sequencing revealed that infection with lytic phages does not appear to prevent spontaneous prophage induction in Gordonia malaquae lysogen strain BEN700, and TEM sample preparation techniques were developed to view both attachment and replication stages of phage infection. Expand

Expansion of a collection of sequenced phage genomes to a total of 60-all infecting a common bacterial host-provides further insight into their diversity and evolution. Expand
